In March, I had the opportunity to spend five days in Chamonix, France with a group of Speed Riders (basically next-level paragliders) who attended this year’s Big Mountain Speed Riding World Meet. Asher and Chris at put this amazing event together.

Some of the top Speed Riding and Speed Flying pilots came to ride and fly with everyone. Riders like Marius Beck Dahle, Joseph Innes, François Bon and Will Burks shared their knowledge with participants (about 40 from around the world).

It was a true pleasure to meet these pilots and to share their passion for the sport.

To celebrate them, and the beautiful moments, here are two videos I recently produced. Enjoy. The scenery and terrain is unparalleled—as is the athleticism.


Only the best. We promise.
